It has been a tough year at DragonRidge Country Club for all concerned due to COVID-19 and its impact on our services. However, there is a silver lining for our Club during these uncertain times. We are not an equity Club (owned by membership). We have one single owner with no debt. is allows us to make financial improvements during this time that other Clubs cannot make, and these costs do not pass on to our Members.
We’re excited about many capital projects in 2020 to keep our Club vibrant, modern, and relevant. A bright, shiny new pump station may not sound exciting, but this half a million-dollar improvement will help keep the golf course turf greener and much more dense, optimizing playing conditions and saving water.
We built a new cart path on #13 and upgraded several walk-up paths to the tee boxes to enhance aesthetics. Ongoing landscaping improvements have beautified tees, greens, fairways, and cart paths throughout the golf course.
Our Club acquired a new fleet of “Club Car Tempo” golf carts, with an on-course GPS showing digital distance, yardage, and mapping of the course, Bluetooth connection to your smartphone and many other custom features included.
Earlier this year, we refinished four main tennis courts improving playability. We are redesigning the existing pool area to create a more functional courtyard for Member events, concerts, parties, and weddings. It will feature an open-air bar, re pits, a tropical waterfall, and new landscaping. The Club’s pool will be moved to the Fitness Center grounds. We will also add an outdoor pickleball court. We will be expanding the Athletic Center to accommodate additional treatment rooms, and we will upgrade the Fitness café lobby area.
We look forward to having these amenities in place once we are fully operational again. These new amenities add value to your Club membership. Homeowners who have not joined the Club yet may want to get in now before the initiation fees go up.
